  • AMD exec's defecting to Nvidia

    Hmmm, this is starting to look interesting. Looks like nvidia picked up a couple of long time AMD execs, Jerry Vogel and Danny Shapiro. Who's next?

    this is why companies pay big bonuses. AMD is not one of these companies clearly.

      I've never seen anyone described as a "hot short" before. Must be a Sillycon Valley thing.

        Update: We've learned from industry sources that Mr. Jerry Vogel actually left AMD almost two years before be was hired by Nvidia so they didnt really steal him of AMD and that even Mr Phil Eisler left AMD six month prior being hired my Nvidia. That casts a different shade to this picture all together.

          nothing 'stealing' just people finding a new job.

          Nvidia is desperately looking for people knowing something about packaging. Another bumpgate and they are dead.

            Fudzilla sounds like a hilarious name for a web blog. A bit like joining IRC with the nick flamebait or trollman. <3

              But yet they are not hemorrhaging money like AMD has for the last two years. With Nvidia's reserves and worth being as large as they are, chances are you will see AMD fold before nvidia does.

                Then again, AMD and nVidia aren't direct competitors. Only AMD/ATi and nVidia are. That's just one part of the big company.

                  The ATI division is the only part of AMD that is not hemorrhaging (they have made one quarter slightly profitable since aquirement), unfortunately any profit it sees is sucked up by the rest in a heartbeat. Don't forget that nvidia is not limited to graphics as well and recently entered a market that AMD really isn't present in with the Tegra, nvidia still dominates the workstation place and absolutely pummels AMD/ATI (marketshare) in the new GPGPU segment.

                    You guys imagining AMD fail seem to be forgetting the huge amount of money they just got from branching off GlobalFoundries...
